Actress Cybill Shepherd
is haunted by her ex-lover Elvis Presley
- because she wishes she could have saved him from his destructive lifestyle.
Shepherd dated the late rock 'n' roll legend shortly before his death in 1977 from a heart attack. He had been addicted to amphetamines at the time. And the Moonlighting
star is often haunted by the vision of Presley as she believes she could have helped him beat his demons.
She says, "I don't feel him (Presley) in a way that I feel I have to call Ghostbusters
, but I've been haunted by the sense that when I knew him, he was very sweet but also seriously into drugs. So I've been haunted by wishing he could have lived longer because I'm from Memphis and I've had the fame thing, too. Maybe I could have helped him."
